“HOW THE U.S. CAN ENSURE ENERGY SUPPLY FOR THE FUTURE”
Speaker: John Hofmeister, President
Shell Oil Company
To ensure U.S. energy for the future, the energy industry must address the delicate balance between energy production and consumption with increased supply. This includes a full array of energy sources: conventional and unconventional oil and gas, clean fossil fuels, alternative and renewable energy sources - including biofuels and hydrogen for transportation fuel, and wind and solar technology for electricity.
The industry must—and can, with advanced technology—conduct business in socially, economically, and environmentally responsible ways.
